@ Basunen 15-6-27: lite torr doft. Smaken är stor av torkat russin och plommon. Mycket fin balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in December 2012. Dark brown with a small head. Aroma and taste of dried fruit, malt, port wine, caramel and some rum. The mouthfeel was thick and the carbonation was soft. Warming alcohol in the finish. Still a tasty one.

330ml Bottle. Aroma of raisins and rum and plum. Palate is full bodied with raisins upfront with a rum backbone sweetness. Taste of other dark fruits such as plum. Boozy warmth fills you up few seconds later. Wonderful decadent beer.

tmrmwel (1252) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, batch 218, enjoyed 2,5 years after bottling. Pours black, with a two finger thick, but fairly quickly receding, mocha head. Aroma is beautifully roasted malts, with dark fruits, bread and toffee, as well as oak barrels with notes of smoke and vanilla. Medium to full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is deep, dark roasted malts, which at first hits with intense whisky notes, rum raisins, wood and leather, as well as notes kandi, dark fruits, cocoa, coffee, molasses and pleasant boozy notes. Lingering sweet malty finish. I often find scotch beers a bit one dimensional with sweet roasted malts, but this adds interesting and tasteful layers on top of that.
